Forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim was one of the best Grizzlies’ in team history but he never played a game in Memphis. He played in 375 games (366 starts) in his five years with the Vancouver Grizzlies and he averaged 38.0 minutes, 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 blocked shot per game. Abdur-Rahim is #2 in Grizzlies’ history in points scored with 7,801 of them. He is also #5 in games played (375), #6 in assists (1,081), #2 in rebounds (3,070), #3 in steals (416) and he’s #4 in blocked shots (374) in Grizzlies’ history. It’s too bad that the fans of Memphis never got to see Abdur-Rahim play because he was a darn good basketball player.
